A TESTIMONY OF TIME

Past and present blend together across Mexico. From pre-Hispanic ruins where the gods of yesteryear dwelled to Baroque palaces and basilicas to the latest trends in design and architecture, destinations across Mexico are a testimony to the evolution and maturity of the nation.

The museums, cathedrals and temples in the 10-acre Historic Center of Mexico City reveal a storied past, starting with the Palacio Nacional, a beautiful colonial building located where the palace of the Aztec ruler Moctezuma once stood. The Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral, which combines Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical architectural styles, is a mandatory stop as well.

Declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 1987, Puebla’s historic center spans 391 blocks, offering 2,619 monuments. There, visitors can admire the mosaic of its numerous buildings, highlighting the combination of tiled bricks and reliefs in white mortar.

Time stops in the State of Mexico, where archeological remains recall great moments in the history of the country. It is home to two small town colonial gems: Malinalco, a sleepy village with fascinating pre-Hispanic ruins perched above it, and Valle de Bravo, a cosmopolitan getaway on the shores of an artificial reservoir.

Founded in the 16th century and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Guanajuato is surrounded by stunning architecture resulting from the prosperity of the silver-extracting industry of the 18th century. The town’s grand Baroque and Neoclassical edifices have influenced buildings all throughout central Mexico.
